Course detail: OSH099 - Winston, the Windsors and James Bond
Winston Churchill had such a penchant for espionage that he might have been to model for James Bond's secretive superior, "M." Churchill had a war to win on many fronts, and just how he did it remained largely secret for 70 years. At last we can examine the tactics used by Churchill and his team to confound and defeat the enemy whoever and wherever they were. We'll review the alleged treasonous actions of the Windsors, the secret British peace negotiations that started in 1942, and the British code-breaking operation. Finally, we'll watch a commando raid first from the public point of view and then with inside information. Why James Bond? That's a secret.
